Beauty Buzz: How to glow like a red-carpet pro

 

Emma Stone looking red-carpet radiant

As your tan starts to fade and your complexion begins to go sallow, help is at hand. St Tropez Bronzing Face Sheet Mask (£15, boots.com) quenches skin and restores radiance in less than 15 minutes. And, for a speckle of freckles, dot Charlotte Tilbury Lip Cheat lip liner in Foxy Brown (£16, charlottetilbury.com) on nose and cheeks. The result? Summer skin for longer.

 THE NEW BODY BOOSTERS

If I use a body product regularly, it has to be worth it. They take precious minutes to rub in and, like many women, I push them down the priority list in favour of fantastic face products. But it’s time to redress the balance. The new Jo Malone London English Oak & Redcurrant Body Crème (£52, jomalone.co.uk) is like a cuddle that smells deliciously of autumn. Votary’s delightful Hydrating Body Oil (£65, votary.co.uk) sinks in fast, smells like summer and makes skin smoother and softer – without a jot of stickiness and no massaging necessary. And, for a speedy body boost, Sanctuary Spa Wet Skin Moisture Miracle (£8, boots.com) is the solution. The genius technology means that the product is instantly absorbed when the skin is wet. So as soon as you get out of the shower, slap it on, dry as usual and you’re good to go.

In catwalk circles, make-up artist Pat McGrath is nothing less than a beauty legend. Her just-launched Pat McGrath Labs Skin Fetish 003 Illuminator Kit in Nude, tested at the Valentino S/S show this year, contains the ultimate glow-giving trinity. At one end of the dual-ended wand is a balm, which adds a subtle bounce of light to cheekbones. At the other end there is a highlighter, which can be worn beneath the balm to amplify your glow. Finally, use the brush to buff the pigment highlighter on to eyelids, collarbones and shins when you need to make a seriously impressive entrance. £70, net-a-porter.com.
